Policy Memo: Welcoming refugees into the community

by Alexander Norfolk, Canada-Europe Dialogues on Migration

This policy memo provides a summary of a Master’s project submitted by Alexander Norfolk at the University of Victoria in November 2017. A model for supporting private sponsorship groups in Victoria, British Columbia, is presented and evaluated. The memo concludes that there is strong potential for replicating such a model to assist the private sponsorship of refugees in other parts of the world.
